stop it. I know it’s you.

I’m no linguist, but I find things to do with cross-cultural communication to be fascinating. Hence, the Business Insider title, These Diagrams Reveal How To Negotiate With People Around The World,” piqued my interest in the article. 

Business Insider’s Gus Lubin took these communication diagrams from a book called When Cultures Collide by British linguist Richard D. Lewis. In the book, Lewis maps communication patterns, leadership styles, and cultural identities. On the benefits of cross-cultural understanding, he writes:

A working knowledge of the basic traits of other cultures (as well as our own) will minimize unpleasant surprises (culture shock), give us insights in advance, and enable us to interact successfully with nationalities with whom we previously had difficulty.

For us non-linguists, Lubin gives a brief summary of each diagram, which you can read in the caption of each diagram. 

For diagrams of Canadian, French, Hong Kong, Israeli, Indian, Swiss, Singaporean, Korean, Indonesian, Hungarian, Finnish, Bulgarian, Norwegian, Danish, Turkish, Polish, Swedish and Dutch communication patterns, check out the article here

What’s your take? Do you think that different nationalities have different communication patterns? Does Lewis accurately capture your nationality’s communication pattern?
